TAOPIX Portfolio is available in three business models; Solo, Professional and Enterprise. Each has been tailored to accommodate specific needs for most business sizes, budgets and applications.
The latest release is the culmination of over 2 years development work, more than 20,000 man hours, 250 enhancements, 250,000+ lines of new code and has resulted in an entire application of which more than 50 percent consists of new features.
Says James Gray, TAOPIX CEO “It’s a very exciting time for TAOPIX and our customers. We’ve taken so much feedback from our customer base and also their customers and many of their enhancement and feature requests have been incorporated into this new release.”
“Our primary goal was to focus on three areas; how can we make it easier to create a book and order, how can we drive volume and how can we bring increased profit to each job? These questions were the motivating factors that lead us to create the impressive array of modules that feature across the TAOPIX Portfolio range.”
